NAME

KBtin - a MUD client and an environment for line-based programs

SYNOPSIS

KBtin [ -v ] [ scriptfile [ scriptfile2 ... ]]

DESCRIPTION

KBtin is a MUD client based on the venerable tintin++ ; however it has uses beyond playing MUDs.
 
A few commands (try #help for the full list):
#session sesname hostname port
Starts a new session. The sesname is a nickname of the new session, and doesn't play any important role. KBtin will open a telnet connection to the given hostname : port.
#run sesname command
Starts a new session by running a local command. In particular, you can use it to start an encrypted connection by #run foo ssh foo.bar.baz.
#help command
Gives you the help on command.
#verbatim
Disables all input parsing, making all text pass as-is. Features such as scrollback, highlights, logging, keybindings or actions continue to work.
#end
Exits KBtin and returns you to your shell.

OPTIONS

-v
Shows the processing done by all subsequent uses of #read. Equivalent to #verbose 1.
-q
Turns off the output from #read. Equivalent to #verbose 0.
scriptname
Processes the commands in scriptname, using #read scriptname.
-c command
Executes a single command. (Note: beware of the evil shell and escape
'#'s!)
-s host port
Starts a new session by opening a TELNET connection to the given host on the given port. KBtin will make up a session name for you.
-S host port
Same, except that SSL encryption will be used.
-r shell_command
Starts a new session by starting a local process. The process will be opened in a pseudo-terminal, making it interactive. The session name will be made up by KBtin.
-p
Selects the "pipe" driver (default if stdin or stdout is not a terminal).
-i
Selects the full interactive tty driver (usual default).
